In brief: Type of back pain
It is one type of problem that can lead to back pain.
It is less common than disc problems but can be associated with a disc problem as well. It is a problem with the small joints of the spine usually due to degenerative changes which can give you back pain after long periods of sitting or standing

In brief: Back Pain
It is a term relating pain coming from the l5/s1 facet joints.
The diagnosis was probably given due to arthritic changes of those joints. To treat and verify facet dysfunctional pain, often facet joint injections are recommended.
